As [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin you might've gleaned from the title]], the NintendoDS game ''VideoGame/MonsterRacers'' is exactly that. A monster-raising game where, instead of fighting each other, monsters engage in friendly races with one another. The game combines the monster-catching and stat-building of the {{Mons}} genre with two-dimensional, {{Platformer}}-style races. Not only does it buck the turn-based RPG trend, it also does away with convention by being set in the real world (well, [[LikeRealityUnlessNoted "real"]]). The presence of strange monsters is explained ([[HandWave sort of]]) by the fact that, a few years ago, a random, star-shaped island appeared in the Pacific Ocean, and shortly after it appeared, monsters that love racing each other started appearing on all the continents.

* HopelessBossFight: Your first fight against Reinhart. What did you expect when you challenged the World Champion near the very start of your career, anyway?

Not to be confused with ''VidoeGame/MonsterRancher'', which is a simulation series.

* BaitAndSwitchBoss: Done ''three times'' for the final boss: At first, from a storyline perspective, it seems obvious that it's [[spoiler: Elder Aku,]] and indeed, said does appear to you after you beat the gauntlet of [[spoiler: {{Recurring Boss}}es he set up for you]]... but then the camera pans away to reveal the TrueFinalBoss... [[spoiler: Professor Olaf! Except that the professor just bungled in there]], and the real final boss is actually [[spoiler: Misaki! Surprise!]]

** Played with some more in the post-game content, [[spoiler: when it turns out the two fake bosses actually are even harder bosses.]]

* AccidentalMisnaming: Bruce just can't get Misaki's name right. She eventually suspects he's doing it just to mess with her. [[spoiler: When he does finally get it right, he has no idea why she's so shocked. Or is he?]]]

* AerithAndBob: Unavoidable, given the international nature of the cast. The main group of kids includes Misaki, Gen, and ''Zoltan,'' with enemies Rosalita and Don Jung. Oddly, the Star Seven all have very Western names, including Japanese Edwin... except for Tatanya.
